Valanice. Please stop crying.

I miss Roo!
Nice, I’m actually interested in playing this game. It looks fun in a Day of the Tentacle kind of way.
Hey Roses! I’m enjoying your KQ7 LP so far! It inspired me to add a
few comments of my own for fun and possible discussion. I apologize if
it’s a little too long. Keep up the good work!
3:56 – With
Valanice being so determined to marry Rosella off, regardless of whether
or not she in love or not, it makes me wonder about her overall
character. Did Valanice marry Graham because she truly loved him or was
she seeking the same stability and security of being a member of the
royal family that she now eagerly seeks for her own daughter with love
not being all that important?
Granted, both Graham and Valanice have suffered a great deal of stress over the
what with them losing their son, a three headed dragon destroying their
kingdom, their daughter being offered up as a sacrifice to the
aforementioned dragon, not to mention Graham suffering a heart attack
and Valanice and her children being kidnapped, shrunk down and
terrorized by a couple of evil wizards. And through all of that,
they’ve stuck together. But the question is WHY did they stick
together? Out of love? Duty to crown and country? The sake of their
children? Or was their marriage always a matter of personal convenience
for the both of them?
And consider this as well. There was a rather odd easter egg from the Sierra
game ‘Freddy Pharkas: Frontier Phramacist’, where if you look at the public
notices in Chester Field’s store, you’ll find one that has King Graham
announcing that he’s no longer responsible for any debts incurred by Valanice
or his children… and that he’s currently shacked up with Passionate Patti of
‘Leisure Suit Larry’ fame in Washington D.C. Was it just a silly joke or was
Al Lowe suggesting that Graham and Valanice’s marriage wasn’t all it seemed
to be? Or maybe he just did it to get a rise out of Roberta Williams. ;P
(Sorry, that one spot went on a lot longer than I planned, back to the comments!)
7:24 – Give her Cedric as a companion, then she’ll REALLY have a reason to cry.
7:55 – Gotta give Valanice credit here, Roger Wilco would’ve kept pricking himself
at your command until he bled to death.
8:14 – It’s a Jackalope, bastard pet of Piltdown Man. Don’t worry, he’ll end up
stuffed on a shelf of a Stuckey’s soon enough.
9:39 – It’s kinda disturbing how much Valanice resembles the evil stepmother
from Cinderella. ^_^;
– I love Valanice’s delayed reaction to the desert ghost after calmly
trying to get his attention before walking up to him. Or maybe he just
smelled really bad?
13:36 – Am I the only one who started humming
the battle theme to Quest for Glory II and expected Valanice to pull
out a sword and shield when the giant scorpion arrived?
21:19 – “Ah, water, nectar of the… oh, you bitch.”
21:59 – Luckily Valanice doesn’t need any water herself, being part camel.
22:08 – It takes guts to wander a desert in a Sierra game. What with Medusa,
Grell, Brigands, Meteors, Scorpazoids, Little Scorpions, Giant Scorpions,
Giant Snakes, Terrorsauruses, Ghouls, Jackelmen, Arnoid the Annihilator…
24:36 – It’s my game and I’ll cry if I want to!
24:44 – Roger Wilco gets a smell and taste icon, Larry Laffer gets a zipper
icon, maybe they should’ve given Valanice a cry icon?
26:56 – Roses: Cash would be nice!
– Don’t be a tuna head, Roses. ;P
27:08 – Bow-chicka-wow-wow…
27:30 – Wow, that tornado was HUNGRY.
28:11 – Hope you’re into threesomes AND necrophilia.
30:17 – She must have pit stains the size of swimming pools by now.
30:22 – And… die. Cut! Great! Print it!
31:30 – Wile E. Coyote would be proud.
34:12 – He lost his heart? Oh great, more spider-bats to deal with. And me
without my scythe.
35:50 – ‘Watch my figure’… yeah, like you haven’t sweated off TEN POUNDS
since you got here.
37:22 – It’s only a blueberry.
38:54 – Stay back! He’s got the CBS logo as a hostage!
39:35 – WELCOME TO YOUR NIGHTMARE…
